Navigating CSR, ESG and sustainability issues is a complex and often heated matter with multiple pressures on business from regulators and investors to ensure proper measurement while also making responsible decisions for the future.
We recognize the immediate need for dialogue among academics and practitioners about sustainability, accountability, data and measurement, related assurance, high quality information to inform responsible investment decisions, and accountability in setting of personal, corporate, and public sector goals.
The aim of this conference is to meet this need by focusing on those 4 key pillars to a sustainable future: investment, assurance, regulation, and target setting while building and strengthening the links between academia and practice, encouraging younger academics by providing an opportunity to present their work to both other academics and practitioners, while providing opportunities for practitioners to communicate with academics and influence their work.
We don’t have time to wait for COP27. The time to act is now.
